An in-depth look at a style in flux, 'SMASH 137 – smash proof' traces the various style excursions and developments of SMASH 137—one of Europe's finest contemporary graffiti writers—as he chases the elusive "perfect style". Never content with resting on his reputation or accepting in-vogue styles, Smash keeps busy mixing it up and pushing his letter forms to the limit. Author Amber Grünhäuser gives us the SMASH 137 "style" lowdown in a series of essays exploring his style lineage, the twists and turns of his style journey, the role of sketching and the 'State of the Line' in his work and his current thoughts and practices. All is revealed—including SMASH 137’s style philosophy and secrets. Be warned this is not for the faint hearted—this is style intensive!

"Firstly, what is style? I mean style is just about character, it’s about the personality you give to the letters, and style development is about sharpening the personality of these letters." SMASH 137
